    The WabiSabi Nonprofit Network is hosting a panel discussion on Thursday, June 14 about funding opportunities for non-profit organizations.

    Panel members will include Andrea Nelson from Daniels Fund, Marian DeLay of the Moab Area Travel Council, Bruce Hucko of the Moab Arts Council, and Marcy Till, private business owner and former member of the Grand County Recreation Special Service District. Each of the organizations represented on the panel provides funding to non-profit organizations.

    The Daniels Fund Grants Program supports non-profit organizations in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, as well as national programs in categories including aging, alcoholism and substance abuse, amateur sports, disabilities, education, the homeless and disadvantaged, and youth development.

    The Moab Area Travel Council provides grant assistance to organizations to aid in the development of tourism. The purpose of the grants is to increase the level of tourism in Grand County through new or fledgling events that could become annual events.

    The Moab Arts Council currently acts as an arts advocacy, leadership and granting organization. They offer "umbrella" not-for-profit 501(c)3 status for groups or individuals seeking grants. Under their grants program the Moab Arts Council also manages and re-distributes funds that the Moab City Council annually allocates for community arts projects.

    At the June 14 discussion, participants will learn about the panel members' organizations, some of the grants they offer, and general grant writing tips. There will also be an opportunity for other non-profit organizations to present information to the group.

    WabiSabi founded the Nonprofit Network to support local non-profits. The WabiSabi Nonprofit Network meets once every two months.

    The panel will take place at the Moab Arts and Recreation Center, 111 E 100 North, from Noon to 2 p.m. This meeting is free and everyone is invited. Participants are asked to RSVP by calling 435-259-3313.
